We never really tried to make firewire work when user was not in audio
group. But, when trying to start jackd, while the user was not in the
audio group, jack crashed. We did not try without the rt option on jack,
I think.

I suppose it may be interesting to know how to work with firewire, if
realtime is accessed differently in the future. Do you think this will
be the case?
